Franchise: Sailor Moon
"A Sailor-suited Pretty Soldier of Love and Justice: Sailor Moon! In the name of the moon, I will punish you!"

Known in Japan as Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon (and given the non-literal English title of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon), Sailor Moon is a multimedia franchise that fused the Sentai and Magical Girl genres. The series started as a manga and was later adapted into an anime. Created by pharmacist-turned-manga author Naoko Takeuchi, Sailor Moon lasted for five seasons, three motion pictures, and a number of TV specials, becoming its own cottage industry in the process.

Works this franchise includes:

  • Sailor Moon: What you're probably looking for. The Magical Girl manga and anime from The Nineties.
  • Codename: Sailor V: Features Minako as the title character before she was Sailor Venus. Vaguely in continuity within different Sailor Moon adaptations, the manga started as a prototype then became a prequel to the original Sailor Moon.
  • Sera Myu: A series of musicals, often heavily deviating from the source material.
  • Sailor Moon: Another Story: A computer RPG based on the first anime (but with manga elements), taking place after the S season.
  • Toon Makers Sailor Moon: An aborted American live action/animation blend adaption by a company called Toon Makers.
  • Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: A 2003 Toku live-action adaptation and retelling of the first major arc, with more obvious J-drama overtones.
  • Sailor Moon Crystal: A 26-episode ONA announced in 2012, which began airing in July 2014 and covers the original and R arcs. This anime began as a faithful portrayal of the manga, but has progressively added its own spin to the story.
